The Exteriors of Hudson

Over on the blog Country Weekend there’s an informal walking tour of sorts, with photos of some of Hudson’s restored (or in the process of restoration) Victorians, Italianates and other delicious buildings. Hudson has more spectacular buildings than these, although we’re impressed with the painted orange facade of the first. What do you guys think of it?

    The orange facade doesn’t fit into the rest of the block, on either side; nor does it fit in with the surrounding blocks. It sticks out like a sore thumb screaming “Look at me! Look at me!”. I know that paint color cannot be mandated by the local Historic Preservation Committee (nor should it be) but one wishes the owners (one of whom is a real estate broker) had more respect for the character and feel of the neighborhood, not to mention a lot better taste.

    Although I am a historical preservation purist in many, many ways, I have to admit that I like the orange paint on this building in Hudson. It adds to the varied and eclectic streetscape on Warren. (And, honestly, with Hudson’s record of demolishing buildings, we should be happy that the building is standing at all to argue over.)
